    Flash Gordon's Trip to Mars (Universal, 1938). Stock One Sheet (27" X 41").
    After the enormous success of Universal's Flash Gordon serial, released in 1936, the studio quickly decided to bring Alex Raymond's popular comic strip character back to the screen in a sequel reuniting Buster Crabbe as Flash, Jean Rogers as Dale Arden, Frank Shannon as Dr. Hans Zarkov, and Charles Middleton as the very embodiment of evil, Ming the Merciless. This time, Flash and crew traveled to Mars to oppose the wicked Queen Azura (Beatrice Roberts), who allies with Ming to conquer the Earth. Based on the 1936 Big Little Book adaptation of Raymond's story, Flash Gordon and the Witch Queen of Mongo, Universal raised the budget and improved upon the already excellent first serial in nearly every way. As lavishly produced as any of their big budget features, the care and craftsmanship that went into these exciting serials is evident in every frame. Not surprisingly, paper from these serials is avidly sought after, particularly the rare and dynamic color stock sheets. These full color beauties are real gems, and are accompanied by serious bragging rights for the lucky collector who winds up with this treasure. This particular copy is unrestored. It has pinholes and small bits of tape in the corners, and some extra vertical creasing. Very Fine-.
